UMass Collaborates With CVS MinuteClinics

Worcester-based UMass Memorial Health Care is forming a partnership with CVS Caremark's MinuteClinic program.

Under the agreement, UMass doctors will act as medical directors of Central Massachusetts MinuteClinic locations, including both an existing clinic in a Northborough CVS store and other sites that will be opening in 2012. The clinics are staffed by nurse practitioners who offer care for common illnesses like strep throat, as well as vaccinations and treatment of minor injuries.

The two organizations say they will work together to make their electronic health records compatible so the MinuteClinics can send information about patient visits to UMass Memorial doctors' offices or hospitals around Central Massachusetts.
